We sourced an original BierKeler table and matching benches and grey washed the very orange wood, we sealed it with Polyvine dead flat varnish and it looks amazing.
That was the dining room the other end of the room, the living room end is where we had some fun.
Here is the leather armchair that we painted, it was worn and did not match the decor ….it was headed for the landfill so I suggested we paint it ! if it was getting dumped anyway right?
I have never really liked the whole painted fabric thing, I’ve seen it look great and see it look like, well… painted fabric!
so before ..
What I have liked the look of was painted leather, yup painted leather ! so we grabbed Fusion Mineral Paint in a pale grey, it was actually the concealer and started painting, it went on like a dream, smooth and the coverage was AMAZING. we did two coats and added some Artisan Enhancements copper foils to the wood frame to tie in some metallic elements of the interior design, what do you think?
We love it, it looks like it was always that colour and doesn’t look ‘painted’ at all and because Fusion Mineral Paint has a built in top coat we don’t need to do anything else to it.
We tested the paint when dry by grabbing the cushions and squeezing them, sorta scrunching them to see if it would crack but it was like it hadn’t been painted!
It took less than £15 to revamp this armchair using Fusion Mineral Paint. Why not pop into the shop or to our online shop to see the whole colour range and see what you can revive xx
